ANTH-2216/BANT-2216 (3)  Archaeology in Popular Culture
Instructor: J. Lindal

From Indiana Jones to Tomb Raider to YouTubers covering the discovery and excavation of prior sites of human occupation, Archaeology holds a special place in the public imagination. Archaeologists have been depicted in popular culture through many formats, including movies and TV shows, literature and comics, news media, video games and more. This course critically assesses the ways in which archaeology is presented to the general public, by both archaeologists and non-archaeologists, and evaluates how the representation of archaeologists matters (or should matter) to a general audience.

ANTH-3133 (3)  Public Anthropology
Instructor: TBA

Contemporary anthropology has changed drastically over the last several decades. Anthropologists no longer exclusively study "primitive" societies; cultural anthropology is engaged and confronting important contemporary social, economic and political issues. In response, anthropologists now engage in these modern issues and at times take a public position. Public anthropology explores such issues as race and tolerance, health and well-being, global terror and militarism, forensic anthropology, and the Internet and other forms of the digital media. This course is designed to inform students about the development of anthropology as a relevant field of inquiry.

Requisite Courses: ANTH-2100 or permission of the instructor.
